A couple of days ago when Doc picked Dodger up at Doggy Daycare the lady told Doc that Dodger had gotten a little too aggressive with another dog and it would probably be best if he didn't come back for a couple of days. For any of you that know Doc and Dodger you know how hard that hit Doc. It was like his child had been expelled from school for fighting. Doc has spent a lot of time and money to train Dodger out of the "street behavior" he had when he came to us as a stray from the shelter. Doc has done a very good job with the training and Dodger is almost always a gentleman at the dog park or any place else he and Doc go.
Because of Doc being a little limited in his activity following a minor surgery Dodger had been at daycare for 5 out of the previous 7 days. The lady explained to Doc that it is common for a dog to get a little aggressive when they come for several days in a row.....they sort of start thinking that they are the "boss". She even said that she could not bring one of her own dogs very often for that reason.
I don't know how much of that explanation Doc actually heard. He just heard that his boy had gotten in trouble and he was crestfallen. All they had ever told him before was what a good boy Dodger had been and how much they like him.
That was at the end of last week and they called from Doggy Daycare today and said they were sure it would be fine for Dodger to come back any time. I don't know when Doc plans to take him back, but when he does I'm afraid Doc might be that strange guy hanging around outside the building peeking in the windows....just to make sure his boy is behaving.
